I am thinking about doing some ABT with smoked salmon and cream cheese. Anyone try this? What do you all think?
Maybe sprinkle the top with a little Tony Chachere's Spicy Hot mix?
I like it in mushrooms, and I've tried it in the ABTs in the past. Ended up using more flaked salmon than cream cheese, or any kind of binder.
Too much cream cheese ended up oozing out and going everywhere. They were ugly, but I enjoyed them for days.
Overall, I just might have to try them again.
Either way good luck!!!
Sounds Great to me!!!---Try to find room for a little Bacon, if you can.
Inside, Outside, or On The Side!!!
Yes, as long as it's not going to be close enough to the heat source to burn or get too crispy.
I always stuff my ABT's with cream cheese and wrap in bacon. I have never pre-cooked the bacon. Smoke at 225 and the cheese seems to form a skin that keeps it from oozing out. I have mixed in salmon and also tried mixing in crab. Both were absolutely delicious!
I tried the ABT's with smoked salmon, cream cheese and bacon. Here is a shot before they went into the MES.
I apologize for not getting a "after photo", these things went fast! They were delicious and I certainly do them again.
The only problem I see is that next fall I need to catch more salmon!
azbo, isn't that a problem every year no matter how good the fishing was? If you made this from river salmon, try getting one straight from the salt this next year. Well, maybe not, then you'll be spoiled like me.
Glad you made them and enjoyed them!
Yep, the were URB...Columbia River Oregon.
I have heard there is quite a difference but these were sooo good! I have had chromers out of salt but they had been done on the grill. I have learned to enjoy grilled salmon (I grew up eating walleye and always thought salmon to be very fishy) but I LOVE IT SMOKED!
I have a freezer full of URB's. Was an amazing year for sure and just might be a chance for a nice return again in 2014. As far as salt vs. river, there can be a difference but some of the river fish
are so close to coming out of the ocean it can't be much. Some fish are just better than others, lower river spawning fish don't have the fat content that the fish traveling a distance to spawn have.
That is what makes the Springers so fantastic. They don't spawn until fall so genetically they have to have the extra body fat to survive that long without eating. Ocean caught Coho are a close second. Will be smoking some of the URB's to thin out the freezer as soon as I get my new smoker.
